Amy's Travels in Teen Fiction: Visit the Past with Michelle Barker
January 10, 2019 The Canadian Children's Book Centre

My guest this month for Amy's Travels in Teen Fiction is Michelle Barker, author of The House of One Thousand Eyes, a novel about life under the East German regime in Berlin after World War II. Listen as we explore the differences and commonalities of writing sci fi/fantasy and historical fiction, learn about the unimaginable tactics of the Stasi, and be inspired by Lena, a teen character who is thought to be simple minded but has more courage than most. I hope you will be as enthralled as I was.
